If you never had a rice crispy bar in your lunchbox, you never had a childhood. The sugary treat was what kept us bouncing off the walls all playtime. But as we’ve grown older, our tastebuds have matured and we’ve learnt a whole lot more about the wellness world’s devil’s dandruff, rice crispies are no longer.
If you were feeling nostalgic about that snap-crackle-pop or you never got to enjoy it in the first place, don’t despair. We’ve brought the childhood favourite back to life as a better-for-you bite.
These healthy puffed treats use brown rice instead of white, are sweetened with maple syrup rather than sugar and are combined using coconut oil. Plus, we think we’ve given them an upgrade with the addition of dark chocolate chips and the oh-so-tasty peach and pumpkin seed OatBox granola.
Make these for your work week and who knows, you might just bring back morning tea.
